He defined postmodernity with reference to two guiding concepts: discourse and power. It is with the help of these concepts that he characterizes the postmodern phenomenon. Michel Foucault was a French philosopher, social theorist and historian of ideas.

In his article, ‘Power, Knowledge and Discourse,’ he mainly focuses on the relation between power and knowledge. He links power to the formation of discourse.

“Culture” in Peril – Aside from Foucault, other postmodernists felt that “Culture is becoming a dangerously unfocused term, increasingly lacking in scientific credentials” (Pasquinelli ).
